Ride the Ridges

September 13 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Cabot, Vermont’s Ride the Ridges is a “something for everyone” type of event. This event, where 100% of the proceeds go towards Cabot Connects, Cabot’s Mentoring Program, offers 4 different distance rides, each with multiple aid stations, plenty of gravel, hills, and scenic overlooks.  We offer a 10k, 30k, 60k, and 100k ride, with staggered start times. The routes are well-marked and maps are provided. Almost all of the riding is on gravel roads and trails, and the scenery is breathtaking.  For those looking for a challenging ride, the 100k offers plenty of challenge, complete with over 7500 ft of elevation gain.

The aid stations are stocked with plenty of energy-rich food, including granola bars, trail mix, maple-syrup shots, freshly picked local apples, freshly made maple donuts, pickles, bananas, plenty of water and gatorade, and even specialty cheeses and crackers – and more!  Following the ride, we deck out the Cabot Green with a mobile wood-fired pizza oven for handmade pizzas with all-natural ingredients, more specialty cheeses, and lots, lots more!!  This is a terrific event put on by terrific people and supporting a terrific cause.  If you have any questions, please contact us through our FaceBook page – https://www.facebook.com/cabotconnects – or by email at info@ridetheridges.net
